Housing

Athena University does not provide dormitories or on-campus housing at this time. It is the student’s responsibility to find housing. For international students, it is best to secure your housing option before you leave your home country.

If you are interested in living with a homestay family, Athena University will help you coordinate your living arrangements. Please contact Athena and we will help you finalize your plans. It is best to apply at least two months before you arrive as it takes time to match you with an appropriate host family. It is your responsibility to communicate closely with Athena to arrange your accommodations.
